Trigger shifters on custom HP Velotechnik StreetMachine full-suspension recumbent bike

Owner-customized HP Velotechnik StreetMachine GTE uses wide-range 11-speed cassette, inverse-mounted trigger-shifters, hydraulic brakes, air shock with lockout switch, and more.

Bobby V has built up his StreetMachine from a framekit.

Check it out:

  • Fox air-shock with rider lock-out button on right-side handlebar
  • SRAM GX 2x11 drivetrain with massive range  10-42 cassette
  • SRAM GX trigger-shifters mounted almost Azub-style
  • DT Swiss XR-1501 rear wheel
  • nice little upper seat-pack and neckrest-mounted taillight

A cable stop has been mounted on the front derailleur instead of the standard HP Velo noodle method.

That is pretty work, Bobby. Congratulations!
